Islamic State (IS) militants launched a major attack on Samarra, a city in Iraq’s northern central province of Salahudin, a provincial security source said.

The attack occurred at dawn when five suicide bombers blew up their explosives-laden trucks near the security checkpoints on a highway and at the western entrance of Samarra, some 120 km north of Iraq’s capital Baghdad, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

The massive bombings were followed by mortar barrage on security positions inside the city while dozens of IS militants advanced in an attempt to enter the city from the western side, the source said.
